Composer’s note: I live where one can often hear the nighttime calls of trains fleeing the city. Far and Away reflects on this distant pleasure. Please be sure to honor the comma breath marks throughout, most particularly in the hooting baseline.
Editor's Note: Low recorder consorts have a special desirable quality to their sound, washing over the listener with a calming reassurance that’s often lacking in high-octave settings. The story arc presented here of trains in the distance evokes a feeling of contemplative well-being, like viewing the crescent moon through the window from the warmth of a down comforter.
